I have a question. I don’t know the answer. Here it is:
Why do so many evangelicals seem to gravitate toward speculation? What makes speculative observations so attractive to Christians?
I don’t think it’s boredom. But, I don’t know. Somehow, people become obsessively fanatical over the speculations of some ‘Christian’ author. This happens even if the author/speaker is patently unqualified to teach theology.
They imbibe a titillating ‘revelation’, then become a proselytizing evangelist of the apocalyptic vision of a peripheral Christian. Once the fuel is spent, and the prophecies and speculations have come to their natural conclusion, they hibernate until another peripheral Christian author/speaker finds some new ‘hidden knowledge’ to pass on.
It reminds me of those who are tossed by every wind of doctrine.
